Bring in Spring - Decor Ideas

Add rustic farmhouse decor to your home indoors and out! See how the same metal farmhouse chairs are used in both places to create a rustic look!

Well hello there .....Spring. It's been a long time. We've missed you. I can't remember a time I've been more ready for nice weather to appear than this year. It's not that our Winter was rough, because it wasn't. It's because I love color and plants and there isn't much going on with that during Jan. and Feb. out here.

So it's time to bring in the Spring.

Every week we have a spectacularly ( yes, that's a real word) fun linky party. People link up from all over the world and share their ideas on homemaking, homesteading and home decor and this last week you could tell people were in the mood for Spring.

Never wanting to disappoint my friends I decided to share with you some of the coolest projects my buddies came up with that are so easy any one of you can do too.

The picture above that's what my friend Angie did over at Country Chic Cottage. The woman is a genius. She shows you how to add rustic farmhouse decor ...get this....inside and out.

This too cute screen door makeover my friend Lisa did at Sweet Tea N Salty Air. She never disappoints. You really should go by and say hello and tell her I sent you. If you are lucky she will have a pitcher of sweet tea all ready for you.

This DIY Picnic Table my new friends Ash and Eileen at Just Measuring Up made all by themselves. Can't you see the fun bbq's in the future?

 Who knew you could use tart pans for more than tarts? Now seriously if you have any of these in your cabinets and they've been sitting there since the one time you actually used them ....pull them out and make these. The possibilities are endless. You could do any color. 
Go see them over at Grillo-Designs. I have got to meet these people.

Now you know what I love about Debbie? She lives in an area where it snows. A lot. So when she can't have a fairy garden outside, yet.......she just makes her own inside. I'm telling you.... Debbie has a solution for everything. Go tour her place at Debbie-DabbleBlog. You will love her little back patio and yard. 

You didn't think I 'd not show you what I'm up to around here did you? I have this super cute old trough I turned into my own little planter. I couldn't stand to throw out my favorite red plates from my house fire and they were broken so I made use of them in the garden. In fact I garden in all types of containers around here. You should go and look at them and tell me what you think You can find them here.
